“Love this hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is near a subway and walking distance to restaurants. Its clean and has a nice modern design, probably recently renovated. First time I stayed at a boutique hotel and its a great experience.

Overall, I had a fine stay at the Hilton. However, my room looked out at a wall and a generator and I could not get my room warm (the windows seemed to let cold air in even when closed). The staff was nice and helpful and the restaurant and bar were pleasant. The food was not great but it was ok. I might stay at this hotel again if the rates were low enough but I'm not sure that I would choose it over other options. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and plenty big.

Found the hotel to be most accommodating. Good location and was able to walk around D.C. Had lunch in the restaurant and it was delightful. Attended a conference in the hotel and found staff to be most helpful in directing my check-in and departure. The outside staff was excellent in obtaining transportation.

I had to come to DC for a business conference. I enjoyed my stay especially the quiet rooms. I was able to rest well so I enjoyed the experience. I will return again when im in town in a few weeks for another business conference.

I stayed here this past week and was given a room with many things broken (receptacles that didn't work, faucets that had only a trickle of water coming out on full force) and a very noisy room right across from the housekeeping closet -- this as a frequent guest here and a Hilton Diamond member -- I was also given a smaller queen room when I reserved and was charged for the king room. All of my previous stays have been very good to outstanding with some exceptionally good to outstanding service.

Now the major issue -- FIRE ALARMS didn't work and hotel staff provided no direction or information for over an hour after the basement fire on Tuesday morning. I was eating breakfast in the lounge and smelled smoke and had burning eyes and was in a room filled with smoke with no alarms going off, nor any guidance from staff. Lobby was also full of smoke and no one there provided guidance. Guests (like me) were standing outside without coats and no information from staff for quite some time. Things got only marginally better later in the day. All reports from other guests also indicated no alarms when they discovered smoke filling the hotel halls.

I wonder how can a Hilton in 2015 still try to charge for WiFi. Is like trying to charge a separate fee for towels or toilet paper... The place is ok, a bit outdated but ok. Location is good, rooms are small, entertainment (tv) sucks, shower has no pressure what so ever; wouldn't stay there again as there are many good options in DC and when they charge me for WiFi is like asking me to never come back, it is dishonest. Apparently if you are a certain level of Hilton Honors (maybe platinum or some other rare metal) some things like WiFi are complimentary... Go figure, I m from a time when you are nice to your customers first to conquer them and then nicer to keep them... I'm thinking of something good to say... Got nothing

The service at this hotel is exceptional. Location is great and the rooms classic and stylish.
The executive lounge is too small and very busy
Overall my last two stays were exceptional.

Downside. There is no 24 hour room service. For a capital city hotel not having late room service
